Jun. 26, 2017 – KSB’s Multitec series of high-pressure multi-stage pumps has been expanded with the introduction of two new higher capacity models.

The Multitec 200 and 250 models have discharge flange diameters of 200 mm and 250 mm (up from a maximum of 150 mm for previously available models) and boast flow rates of up to 1,500 cubic metres per hour and developed heads as high as 400 m. Like the smaller members of the Multitec family, the new pumps are designed to provide owners with reliable, efficient operations and simplified maintenance procedures, says the company. According to KSB, a pressure balance drum reduces axial forces on bearings, while the layout of the pump enables bearing and seal replacement without requiring disassembly of the core hydraulic elements.
